Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

We'll tell you about a $100 million dollar proposed project to map the human brain. The idea is to eventually find cures for diseases like Alzheimer's.

Also today, an act of heroism off the battlefield. See how a veteran comes to the rescue of an elderly woman.

A bizarre story out of Trinity, Texas. Police chase a man at high speeds down a highway after his family had reported his strange behavior. Once stopped, authorities discovered what had the man on edge …he said he had the devil buried under some branches in the back of his truck!  And he had a plan to deal with said devil. Find out what that was at noon. You can also check out the story HERE.

Plus, it's an American food staple and now it's the topic of controversy. Some food bloggers have been investigating U.S. products using additives that are banned in other countries. Well, these bloggers are now getting national attention after petitioning Kraft to remove food coloring from its popular mac and cheese.

Some morning fog gave way to partly cloudy skies today, and Ben says those clouds will continue to increase throughout the day. He says we'll probably see some quick showers this afternoon, but by this evening the coverage and intensity of rain will pick up, and by tomorrow – look out.  Just how much rain can we expect thru Wednesday and into Thursday? It could be pretty heavy, so be sure to tune in for Ben's live, local forecast today at noon.  You can also access weather information anytime HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
